Tenuta Caparzo Brunello di Montalcino 2009
Color: Ruby red, tending to garnet red with ageing. Bouquet: Penetrating, very full and varied, reminiscent of wild berries. Flavor: Dry, warm, full-bodied, harmonious, delicate and austere at the same time, persistent. Food Combinations: Roasts, grilled, spit-roast or braised meats, game, ripe cheeses.
The “Caparzo” name seems to originate from Ca' Pazzo, as seen in several ancient maps. The vineyards, cellars and all wine-making equipment were developed towards the end of the 1960s, with progressive adaptation and constant up-dating of both the land and the cellars. Innovative cultivation systems and, in particular, several clones are still experimented today on the estates - extending over an area of 190
RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
Purple juju fruits and a hint of herbaceousness lead into a very easy and soft palate that is smooth with blue and black berries. Fresh and even a bit bright.
Candied dark berry flavors and a little smokey and herbal. The finish was a bit vinegary for me.
Initial “heavy,” “stinky” nose blows off after a few minutes. A “fresh” one replaces it showing some strawberry, mint, maybe, some citrus. No big blast of fruit on entry, but there is noticeable red berry hints. Very nice, not overwhelming acid. Some hints of earthiness. Fairly stiff tannin sneaks in on the back of the palate. Good wine and one that will match well with just about any hearty meal.
Three and a half glasses
Solid notes of grilled meat over firm black cherry. Brooding and muscular. More lean black cherry on the palate with some smoke and leather. Grippy, fine-grained tannins and a bit disjointed at this stage, but with balanced components. Finishes with nice length and lingering notes of sweet leather and sandalwood.
External Reviews for Tenuta Caparzo Brunello di Montalcino
Caparzo’s 2008 Brunello di Montalcino is impressive. It boasts serious depth, nuance and complexity. Smoke, licorice, spices, black cherries and plums all develop in the glass, supported by firm, beautifully integrated tannins. This is a solid Brunello with plenty of upside for the next decade, if not longer. Anticipated maturity: 2015–2028.
Fresh cherry and raspberry flavors highlight this juicy red, with accents of underbrush and tobacco lending nuance, followed by a spicy finish. The dense tannins suggest this is built for the long haul. Best from 2016 through 2030.
A tight, linear style, elegant and supported by firm, dusty tannins. Cherry, molasses and tobacco notes are savory, while the chewy texture persists through the finish. Best from 2014 through 2025.
The 2006 Brunello di Montalcino is a pretty, mid-weight offering graced with crushed flowers, dried cherries, spices and sweet herbs. Menthol, licorice and roses add complexity on the high-toned, feminine finish. Already pretty approachable, the estateandrsquo;s 2006 Brunello looks to be an excellent choice for near and mid-term drinking. The Brunello spent 36 months in large Slavonian and French oak casks. Anticipated maturity: 2012andndash;2024.
Komplexes Bukett nach reifen Kirschen, Kräutern, Leder und Gewürzen. Kräftiger aber geschmeidiger Körper mit komplexer Aromatik und reifen, präsenten Gerbstoffen im Finale.
Dunkles Rubinrot. Würziges, vielschichtiges Bouquet. Finessenreicher, klassischer Brunello mit reichen Aromen nach dunklen Beeren. Abgerundete Tannine und eine feine Säure machen diesen Wein zu einem idealen Essensbegleiter. Dunkle Früchte, dicht, schöne Tannine, kräftig und lang im Abgang.
Drei Jahre (und länger) verweilt der Wein in grossen Eichenfässern und Barriques. Rubin- bis granatrote Farbe, mit komplexem Aroma von Kirschen und Waldbeeren.
